I bought this palette on impulse as I could not resist the entire packaging and concept of this series! Yes, I’ve been eyeing for close to 8 months before succumbing to purchasing them!
Background info: living in tropical, humid climate. Currently transitioned into a more oily combo, slightly dehydrated, acne prone skin type. Used to be an NC35 & now more of a NC25 as I don’t tan as much!
This is great for the everyday wearable, “natural”, glow from within skin look, without looking too cakey! The peach blush suits perfectly, although at the first sweep to my cheeks, I felt like the colour did not show up as much as I expected it to me.
Pigmentation in general is ok, and very buildable. The bronzer also matched perfectly as well, although I would say its more of an overall bronze. If you’re looking for a more harsh contour, this is not for you.
All the 3 shades have slight shimmer in them, which I believe its supposed to give the illusion of “glow from within” look. What I like most is that the shimmer is not extreme, a slight sheen which reflects beautifully on your skin even with a light wash. Even the highlighter can be used to highlight your brows.
Of course, how can I ever forget the scent! Yes, peach based scent. If you don’t like it, this is no go for you. But I’ve fallen in love with it since and haven’t been able to put down!
- Not colour friendly obviously. I cannot imagine anyone else darker than me ever using this cause I doubt the colours will show up on their skin.
- Price. On a steeper side but again, you’re really paying for the brand, packaging and overall the entire concept.
- Packaging is a bit bulky. Yes, it comes with a mirror! But not travel friendly.
All in all, i think this is the kind of product you’d want to splurge on, not an essential! I’m sure they’re cheaper alternatives out there, no doubt, but even so this has been my go-to palette every single day before going to work cause it has everything that i need in it! I also feel you need to know which brushes work the best for each shade so that the colours will show up nicely on your skin, which was what happened to me by trial and error.
Overall this can be your palette for the everyday look, casual, cute, natural, glow from within - which is the look that I’ve been going for the past few months.
I highly doubt I’d repurchase it, simply because I bought it as a one time splurge on a cute product, but I do think it does its job well, no further complaints with it.
Hopefully this review helps!
